In mason jar (or cleaned small salsa jar, like I used), place the following ingredients, give it a good shake, and place in fridge overnight. In the morning you will have a lovely creamy pudding packed with goodness!! Great for breakfast or snack mid morning.
- 1/3-1/2 cup oats
- 1 Tbsp Chia Seeds
- 1/4 cup Greek Yogurt (regular yogurt if you have it is fine, simply reduce milk to 1/4 cup)
- 1/4-1/3 Cup Almond Milk, (soy, dairy, etc works as well)
We made ours with this base and added the following combinations.
1 Tbsp Cocoa, 3 Chopped Strawberries, 1 tsp Vanilla and 1 Tbsp Honey.
Peanut Butter Cup:
1 Tbsp Cocoa, 2 Tbsp Peanut Butter, 1 tsp Vanilla and 1 Tbsp Honey. (I would add a little more honey when I eat this one, a little bland…next time I am going to try Maple Syrup) The variations are endless. I will be sharing all the combinations we try. So far, these are the first 2 and both are great.

Are the same as the baking ones or instant? Plus how long are these good for. I would love to prep 3 days worth.
I have used quick cook or regular. I prep 4 and use them up to 4 days later. If you want fruit in them, use them faster, but if making them without fruit, they will last 4-5 days. You can always add fruit later.
